Need Some Help With My PC
    #24670184 - 09/29/17 03:44 PM (3 years, 7 months ago)

So I bought a 22qt T-Fal PC here's what the important parts look like



Now I'm running a cycle right now and as you can see it's not at 15 psi (12 o'clock) but the operating valve is hissing, it doesn't have a rocker weight. My instinct is to assume the gauge is inaccurate and that the hissing is a good indicator that max pressure has been achieved. I vented for 10 minutes before setting to 15psi. I'm PCing a bottle of agar at the moment, so I'm not worried about losing too much water and I'm at 13psi

Ive got the same one. I wedge a paint stick under the valve to close it a bit more and it will hit 15.. Runs at like 14 if i dont with a propane burner under it.

Thanks Variegated, I'll keep that in mind next time. I just ran it for an extra 15-20 minutes just to be sure.

In order for a valve on a PC to be very accurate you must have it calibrated constantly.... so essentially they are useless. There should be some indicator other than the dial that will indicate the PC has come up to pressure, just check out the user manual.

I have a PC with a dial, yet I only pay attention to the rocker
